Charleston has no shortage of beautiful, historic venues, but those brides seeking a more contemporary, sophisticated option for their big day should consider the Gibbes Museum of Art. Located on historic Meeting Street in the heart of downtown, this convenient downtown space offers the choice of several galleries or the stunning outdoor Gibbes Courtyard for your Charleston wedding. The galleries offer dramatic views of famous works of art as the backdrop for each event and can be specially tailored to suit your event.
Surrounded by Magnolia and Crepe Myrtle trees, Gibbes Courtyard calls to mind the charm and whimsy of an urban secret garden, setting the perfect tone for an elegant, chic reception and providing fabulous backgrounds for your wedding photography. As a wedding photographer, I get asked all the time about outdoor venues that offer a modern feel and the Gibbes Museum of Art is always my top recommendation for weddings in Charleston.
